I have had problems getting a neurologist that works after 2.30 pm. I have to take time off work if I need to see them and therefore have had to revert back to my primary care doctor for prescriptions. I think this is pretty poor.

Dr. Bautista seems to be a very concientious and thorough doctor. She is good at answering my questions, explaining why we need to do what we do and, in this case with the uti, got across the importance of the treatment for a bacteria that was very resistant to treatment. I feel she keeps up to date with the latest medical information and she explains things when I ask questions. I also email through My Chart and she always gets back to me. If it is urgent, she will call.

This was an appointment to establish Dr. Bautista as my new pcp. She was very patient and accommodating, and took the time to go over my medical history with me so she could familiarize herself with my case, as well as answer any questions I had. A very good first appointment, I am definitely looking forward to working with her again in the future.
